USC had a lineman camp on Friday and the Gamecocks handed out new offers to a pair of offensive linemen in the next two classes. For 2018 the offer went to Wyatt Campbell (6-6 285) of Lugoff-Elgin, and the 2019 offer was extended to Kamren McCray (6-6 320) of Berkley. Campbell now has 17 offers while the offer for McCray was his first.
Campbell also has offers from Louisville, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Maryland, Arizona State, Duke, NC State and several mid-majors. The USC offer, however, was one he was coveting and he said for a moment he considered committing on the spot.
“I’m going to visit some other schools just to be 100% sure with my decision, but it really gives me an option to stay at home and play at the highest level of football,” Campbell said. “They said they really liked how I played. They like that I’m very physical and just how I approach the game.”
Campbell, of course, drew a lot of attention from USC offensive line coach Eric Wolford. He obviously impressed him and he liked what he saw and learned from Wolford.
“I like that he is a very energetic coach and that he is going to push his players to be the best they can be,” he said. “We worked mainly on my pass rush (protection).”
Campbell plans to visit Virginia Tech on Saturday and Clemson June 14th. He visited Duke and NC State earlier in the spring. He plans to make a decision at the end of summer.
